As part of the statewide effort to reduce and prevent tobacco use among youth, the department provides non-competitive grant funding to schools, professional development and technical assistance to school faculty and staff around tobacco use prevention and cessation curriculum and makes curricular resources available on loan through the Health Education Resource Center. The funds to schools, which are appropriated annually by the Vermont Legislature, target four primary goals:

  • Coordination of tobacco prevention efforts;
  • Provision of evidence-based tobacco prevention education;
  • Development and implementation of model tobacco policy; and
  • Involvement of families and community in supporting school-based tobacco prevention initiatives.
